Seminar Series on Innovations in Corruption Studies: ‘Will Democratic Accountability Reduce Corruption?’

On 20 January 2016, Monika Bauhr (Quality of Governance Institute – University of Gothenburg) will present her paper ‘Will Democratic Accountability Reduce Corruption? Need, Greed and Conditions for Collective Action’ as part of the seminar series ‘Innovation Studies in Europe and beyond’. The series is presented jointly by the UCL ANTICORRP team, the SSEES Centre for European Politics, Security and Integration (CEPSI) and the Slavonic and East European Review (SEER). The series will bring together distinguished speakers from ANTICORPP partner institutions across Europe and prepare for the launch of a SEER special issue on innovations in corruption studies edited by Professor Alena Ledeneva (to be published January 2017).

Monika Bauhr is an Associate Professor at the Quality of Government (QoG) institute at the department of Political Science, Göteborg University. Her research is mainly concerned with the role of international organizations and aid in promoting quality of government, and in particular the link between transparency, accountability and corruption and how perceptions of different forms of corruption influence the effects of international development assistance and emission trade. Her most recent work is published in journals such as the International Studies Quarterly, Governance and Global Environmental Politics.

The seminar will be followed by an informal discussion over coffee/tea.

All students, staff and visitors are welcome. No registration required.
